MCC Baseball Set For MACJC State Tournament
May 5, 2015

From School Reports

The Meridian Community College baseball team is in the middle of preparation for the 2015 MACJC State Tournament which is set to begin on Thursday in Raymond, MS on the campus of Hinds Community College. A possible seven games will be held over the three-day period with the top three schools from this weekend's event advancing to the NJCAA Region 23 Tournament next weekend in Eunice, La.

Meridian will draw the top seeded Hinds Community College Eagles in its opening round game which is set for Thursday evening beginning at 6 p.m. MCC played Hinds just over a week ago for opportunity to clinch the 2015 MACJC regular season title, but were swept (4-11, 8-13) at the hands of Hinds. Hinds is coming off a two-game sweep over Southwest Community College on Friday and Saturday, while Meridian was taken to the limit by East Central Community College before claiming the series in game three on Saturday by a final score of 11-1.

No. 16 East Mississippi Community College (28-14), which defeated Mississippi Delta Community College in the MACJC first round, and Northwest Community College (30-13), which defeated Jones County Junior College over the weekend, will meet in the opening game of the tournament at 2 p.m. on Thursday.
 
All four teams in this weekend's state tournament served as hosts for last weekend's best two-of-three series due to each team finishing in the top four overall in the MACJC regular season standings, with Hinds finishing first, trailed by East Mississippi in second, Northwest in third place and Meridian in fourth place.
 
A pair of elimination games are scheduled for Friday, with the losing teams in games one and two meeting at 11 a.m. The loser of that contest ends their season while the victor secures a spot in the regionals and in the 6 p.m. elimination game later that evening.

The two winners of Thursday's matchups hit the diamond at 2:30 p.m. with a berth to the title game on the line. The loser of that game must bounce back quickly with a final elimination game booked for a 6 p.m. start on Friday evening.
 
The 2015 MACJC State Championship game will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday with an if necessary contest to follow at approximately 6 p.m. The MCC games are scheduled to be broadcasted on radio by simply tuning to 106.9 The Eagle which is the campus radio station of Meridian Community College.

The Meridian Community College golf team held a special signing ceremony on Tuesday afternoon to recognize three of its sophomores that have signed to continue their careers at the next level. Connor Cavin, Ty Medling, and Luther Thompson were the three sophomores that we present at the ceremony to sign their respective scholarships with the college of their choice.

The three young men also helped led the team to nine tournament wins in two year and six of those were tournament victories in conference action. The 2015 sophomore class also helped the team win the prestigious Farmers Insurance Team GPA Award by having a team GPA of over 3.00.

Connor Cavin (Baton Rouge, LA) and Ty Medling (Memphis, TN) both inked scholarships to attend William Carey this fall. Cavin was named First Team All-State both years at MCC.
